ANI Photo | Maharashtra: Nana Patole says “not aware of context” on Sanjay Raut’s parliament comment

Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole, reacting to the controversial comment of Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut, in which he has described the newly inaugurated parliament building as akin to a ‘five-star jail’, said he is not aware of the context in which the comment was made.
“I haven’t heard it yet. I don’t know the context in which he said that” said Patole when asked about the comment during a brief media interaction on Friday.
While speaking to the media on Thursday, Raut said, “The new Parliament building that has been built is neither fit for work nor fit for sitting. The new parliament is like a five-star jail where you can’t work. When we form our government, we will start our parliament session in our historical parliament building (the old parliament).”
Further attacking the ruling BJP Patole said, “BJP is doing what they do, increasing inflation, that suffers people.”
The new parliament building was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi in May last year. The old Parliament House in India, designed by British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, is a colonial-era building that underwent six years of construction from 1921 to 1927.
The new Lok Sabha Hall has a capacity of up to 888 seats, and the Rajya Sabha Hall, now enlarged, can accommodate up to 384 members.
This expansion enables joint sessions of Parliament to convene with a combined capacity of up to 1,272 seats, fostering a more inclusive assembly during such sessions
